Eager young scientists across Northern Ireland have been putting the finishing touches to their science and technology projects in the run up to the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2011.
The event is the largest of its kind in Europe showcasing students’ talents in the areas of science, technology, mathematics and engineering.
Apart from the 346 participating schools over 35,000 visitors are expected to come through the doors of the RDS to view projects and the impressive array of entertainment acts.
This year visitors will be treated to shows including children’s TV presenter 'Nature Guy' Dale Treadwell and the W5 team who will demonstrate the chemical reactions in fire by creating fire tornadoes!
